The Dark needs you

Special to The Log

Volunteers are needed for The Dark! The haunted attraction is continuing 10 years of fear, starting Oct. 9.

No mere roadside attraction, The Dark, the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge's annual haunted house, is the most blood-curdling attraction this side of the continental divide. Located at Fudpucker's on Okaloosa Island, this is not a haunted house for the faint of heart and small children are not recommended. Cringe as you tiptoe through the horrifying maze of darkness and flee in terror as you are engulfed by the madness.

Volunteers are needed for construction, prop design and installation, security, pushers, and monsters. Volunteers must be 16 or over and will receive community service hours. For more volunteer information call 850-650-1880 or email volunteers@ecwildliferefuge.com. Please note, all The Dark Haunted House volunteers must have a Volunteer Registration Form which may be downloaded at www.ecwildliferefuge.com/thedark.

Build volunteers please email your information to thedark@ecwildliferefuge.com. Build schedule is Saturdays and Sundays beginning at 10 a.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays 5-9 p.m.

Remember, while you're trembling you'll be helping a good cause. One hundred percent of event proceeds will be donated the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is supported by private contributions and donations since 1994. The ECWR receives no government funding, and depends on the generosity of donors, sponsorships, grants, and revenue of special events.
